every year I feel like I'm being forced to prepare for Christmas sooner than I want , but this year's different.
I'm actually enjoying what I call "a timely preparation of the holidays". The tree's not up yet,not until after Thanksgiving people because that's how I roll.
I'm just taking my time this year and really enjoying my family because isn't that what it's all about ?
I spent a whole day with my sister poking around Amish country and visiting shops for decorating ideas.
We hardly spent a thing and it was great !!
I don't see what's so fun about buying all this stuff that you don't really need, then trying to find someplace to put it all and eventually donating it anyway...it's just so silly!
I did find a few treasures but nothing that would cause Buyer's Remorse.
I also picked up "A Simple Life" magazine, the photos are absolutely beautiful and it makes me want to simplify even more !
There are some yummy recipes inside for a cabin Christmas that I plan to use .
Yep, this year we are slowing down several notches and making some wonderful memories because that's the way it should be.
